After having their Twitter account compromised earlier this month, Microsoft has again been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army. This time the target was the newly redesigned Office Blog, where the SEA posted several articles titled “Hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army.”

Shortly after claiming responsibility for the attack, the hackers took to Twitter to further taunt Microsoft: “Changing the [content management system] will not help if your employees are hacked and they don’t know about it.” After the attack earlier this month, Microsoft confirmed that a small number of employee email accounts were compromised.

Microsoft has since stated that the accounts have been reset and that no customer information was compromised.
